Ingredients

    Nonstick cooking spray
    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
    1/2 cup ground flaxseed
    1 cup lightly packed light-brown sugar
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 1/2 cups coarsely grated zucchini (from 1 large zucchini)
    1/3 cup mashed ripe banana (from 1 large banana)
    3/4 cup whole milk
    1 large egg, lightly beaten
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a 12 and a 6 standard muffin cups with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, flaxseed, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add zucchini and banana and stir to combine. In a small bowl, whisk together milk, egg, and vanilla. Add milk mixture to flour mixture and stir until combined (do not overmix).
